now it is christmas

 my momma made this for me. she carved the wood and painted and everything! wish i had a little of her in me...

we put up our tree last night and when tanner walked out of our bedroom this morning he said, "now it feels like christmas." tanner initially was being a little scroogie-like and didn't want a tree since we won't be home on christmas, so i was glad that his reaction was a good one today. thank goodness my mother in law had an extra one ;) we had fun buying a few decorations and now we get to add a few more every year.
well, we're counting down the days to thailand! we will be visiting cambodia and vietnam as well. this year has been a blessing of travels and it won't stop until february.. i think. everytime i think we're about to stay put, we go somewhere else. we have two days to be home from thailand and then we're off to canada and then vegas a couple weeks after that. it has been so much fun and we have had awesome experiences. i also can't wait to settle and start a little family :) that will be an experience in itself i am sure!

zeneggen, switzerland

is "the hills are alive, with the sound of music" song running through your head? if not, i don't know what's wrong with you ;) say hello to zeneggen, switzerland, my fantasy homeland. i may have said this about most of the places we visited while in europe, but can't you see how peaceful and perfect this place was? we arrived super early in the morning after spending two nights in train stations (not an ideal place for sleep fyi) and needless to say we were poooooped. we crashed in the cutest cottage nestled high up in the alps. we slept for a few hours then went in our backyard for a picnic lunch. and then we slept some more outside. we explored around the hills and just enjoyed ourselves and took it easy. this was the perfect pit stop for being on the constant go. we had a chance to unwind and be with mother nature. if you know me, you know i am crazy about switzerland. i don't know if i've ever been more content in my life. i have always imagined what it would be like there and even my best dreams didn't compare. and you bet i've pestered tanner ever since this magical place to move there. i would relocate in a heartbeat if the opportunity presented itself. i could just see our little kiddos running around the mountains playing with the mountain goats, like heidi. 
haha, and i'm being serious.
